Limited to just 50 autos and their owners (or any 2 persons), the Tour will be led by our Grand Marshal, Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe. Palos Verdes is very scenic peninsula surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean. The ideal place for a morning drive along tree lined roads and the rugged bluffs rising from Pacific surf. A Poker Run component, with a fantastic top-hand prize, is available to all participants to add an extra dash of excitement. We'll finish for a delicious lunch at the Terranea Resort's exclusive mar'sel restaurant with a gorgeous ocean view. A fantastic Saturday morning drive with a tasty finish.

A New Home for a Palos Verdes Institution

The Palos Verdes Concours D'Elegance has changed venues multiple times over the years since getting its start at the Ladera Linda soccer fields and Palos Verdes Peninsula High School football field more than 22 years ago. The event was held many times at the former Ocean Trails Golf Club, and then at Rolling Hills Country Club and back to what became Trump National. 2015 marks our first time at Los Verdes, which is in Rancho Palos Verdes—a marvelous venue tremendous views of the Pacific Ocean and excellent amenities for our guests. 

For the benefit everyone who has enjoyed the Concours at Trump National during the past eight years, the primary reason for the change is the scheduling of a PGA tournament at Trump National that conflicts with our show. Trump National has been a great host and we wish the organization the best of luck with their tournament.

Los Verdes Golf Course offers us a tremendous location to continue our world class Concours, right in the heart of Palos Verdes. The 23rd Annual Palos Verdes Concours D'Elegance is going to be our most fun show yet, and we are very excited by what we see at our new home. Lots of advantages, rolling green lawns to stroll on amongst the beautiful autos, and stunning views of the same Pacific Ocean that we've grown used to enjoying. 

Speaking for the Board of Directors and all the volunteers that aid in this not-for-profit, charitable event each year, we look forward to seeing you in September at Los Verdes Golf Course. Come out and support this unique annual event that helps make Palos Verdes such a special place.
